Re: Chris Heisey #1 LF on chart
How can you project Heisey as your starting LF? He hasn't played in a MLB game yet. Gomes and Nix combined for 43 2B, 35 HR, 97 RBI, and .253 avg. last year. I don't think you're going to get that kind of production out of any other combination of LF prospects on the 40 man roster. How much improvement can we expect from other options? I know the defense could be better but, I just don't see a glaring need in LF now. And, I think he is one of the leaders in the clubhouse. Maybe last season was an exception for Gomes, and he might not repeat those numbers. But, at least he's a proven MLB player. IMO, he's worth the chance. If $$ is that big a problem (Hernandez?), then it's another long season for the fans (again).
